DIMAPUR, Aug 6: Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) president, K Therie, has maintained that the future of Naga People’s Front (NPF) was no more in Nagaland, saying the party has been reduced to “a fragmented, divided party fighting for their own interests and not for the public.”
Speaking at the general meeting of 16-Pfütsero Assembly Constituency Congress Committee (ACCC) at Pfütsero town hall, Therie recalled NPF’s assertion that BJP was its natural ally but wondered why NPF changed its stand after Dr. Shürhozelie was ousted.
He said that all 60 MLAs have forgotten the public and were fighting for portfolios and that public also dare not question them since they themselves involved in corrupt practices during election.
He said there was no guarantee whether the 60 MLAs would return in the next general election but stressed that those who endorsed RSS ideology should be defeated.
Therie also said that the NPF government was in fear of BJP because of corruption of its leaders.
“They fear the CBI and the NIA. The day they part ways from BJP, all the MLAs will be prosecuted”, he said. NPCC president said that till today, no extra assistance has been awarded to Nagaland after BJP came to power despite NPF patronising BJP.
Therie recalled that though BJP lost both in Manipur and Goa, yet it formed the governments through the office of the Governor . He said misuse of the office of the Governor was exhibited in Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland and other states.
He concluded that given opportunity, the Congress would deliver the programs and policies contained in the Roadmap, some of which he highlighted.
All India Seva Dal national organizing secretary, N. Neilo Koza, in his address, said that atrocities towards Christians and minorities in India have increased after BJP came to power at the centre. He said that RSS was running the government by proxy at the centre and in Nagaland through the proxy of the NPF party.
He also stated that NPF has been reduced to a divided house, adding that NGOs and public were crying for change. “Together we will change the future and Congress will form the next government,” Koza said.
Short speeches were also delivered by DCC Phek president, Mikha Kenye and NPCC secretary, Kedou Wetsah. Meanwhile, the meeting adopted five-point resolution.
